Virtual Villagers: A New Home
This is AN APPEALING GAME: Another Winner from the LDW Developers!
Virtual Villagers is a WONDERFUL game. I was not sure I wanted to play a "tribal" game but it's truly exciting! The instructions are explained well in a short tutorial and then the player is left on his/her own to solve the mysteries from some visual or textual clues. I enjoyed taking my time figuring out how to enable the islanders to survive and thrive [after fleeing their previous volcanic island]. I like this first game of the VV series so much that I went to Big Fish and bought the ensuing four sequels ... because I think I will love to play them too. KUDOS to LDW for creating their charming and fun games!
PS. Once the islanders got busy, I liked turning off the music and just listening to sounds of the ocean & splashes, the building taking place, children giggling, lovers kissing, babies cooing, apprentices sighing "no", etc.

Sit Right Back and You'll hear a Tale...
Nope... not Gilligans Island but villagers of Isola...This is the first and simplest of the VV series and I want you... it can become addictive.Live, Love , celebrate and mourn with your little villagers as they work to find food , build shelters, explore their Island and solve its mysteries.You will be given Events, and depending one the choices you make ,it will either help or hurt the villagers. Also, mysterious someone or something is ALSO watching your villagers as well as you.Who or what is it? what does it want?Play the game and find out!

Once you play this game you will want the series. You will fall in love with all the charecters that you get to name and watch grow.

First of all: I'm a 56 year old woman that likes to play Royal Envoy or Westward.
Virtual villagers is so boring. You can hardly influence the game, you'll just have to wait until next morning to see what happend.
For lazy gamers only!

don't like the fact that they give you options for the numbers, I like to figure everything out for myself.

Worst game I've played so far
This is the worst game I have played so far (and I buy A LOT of games). Actually, you don't play this game, you watch it play itself! No challenge, poor visual and sound, no fun at all.
The only reason why I will watch this game play itself until it's finished is because I have unfortunately paid for it.
